Heaven knows, we need never be ashamed of our wolfish cravings. . . . Bristly, sensitive, and meat-hungry Pip is a robust young whelp, an orphan born under a full moon. Between hunting escaped convicts alongside zombified soldiers, trying not to become one of the hunted himself, and hiding his hairy hands from the supernaturally beautiful and haughty Estella, whose devilish moods keep him chomping at the bit, Pip is sure he will die penniless or a convict like the rest of his commonly uncommon kind. But then a mysterious benefactor sends him to London for the finest werewolf education money can buy. In the company of other furry young gentlemen, Pip tempers his violent transformations and devours the secrets of his dark world. When he discovers that his beloved Estella is a slayer of supernatural creatures, trained by the corpse-like vampire Miss Havisham, Pip’s desire for her grows stronger than his midnight hunger for rare fresh beef. But can he risk his hide for a truth that will make Estella his forever—or will she drive one last silver stake through his heart?

"Reading a Lina Gardiner book is like riding an out-of-this-world roller coaster with your favorite people in the world." --Joyce Lamb, USA Today bestselling author "Lina drops crumbs of information like Gretel dropping crumbs to find her way home; instead of home, though, we are led to the startling denouement so smoothly, we are left gasping."-BittenbyBooks.com "The lead couple is a fascinating pair . . . they make a formidable team as they battle killer vampires . . . fans will appreciate the adventures of Jess Vandermire, vampire hunter."--Harriet Klausner, Alternate Worlds For decades, Jess Vandermire, has been fighting the city's biggest threat--deadly hunters in the night. But with John 'Britt' Brittain, by her side, there's nothing she can't handle. That is, until now. Suddenly... The vampires Jess and Britt are hunting aren't acting like normal bloodsuckers. They're braver, smarter...and harder to kill. The Vatican has ordered Jess's brother, Father Regent Vandermire, to save the soul of a massive, bloodthirsty creature. But his prayers aren't working. And if the monster gets much bigger, the whole city will need them. Her beloved Britt is once again in her life. But until he understands his newfound powers, he won't touch her. Because there's a good chance his love might kill her... Jess quickly realizes she and Britt aren't powerful enough to handle the upcoming challenge alone. There's only one man who can help--evangelist Malcolm Fisk. Too bad they can't trust him . . .

On the home front, Lina lives in New Brunswick, Canada, a hot spot for legendary ghosts, tall tales and odd happenings, which probably add to her love of a good mystery. The spooky stories her grandfather told his grandchildren in the "parlor" when their grandmother wasn't paying attention didn't hurt either...

Great Expectations has had a long, active and sometimes surprising life since its first serialized appearance in All the Year Round between 1 December 1860 and 3 August 1861. In this new publishing and reception history, Mary Hammond demonstrates that while Dickens’s thirteenth novel can tell us a great deal about the dynamic mid-Victorian moment into which it was born, its afterlife beyond the nineteenth-century Anglophone world reveals the full extent of its versatility. Re-assessing generations of Dickens scholarship and using newly discovered archival material, Hammond covers the formative history of Great Expectations' early years, analyses the extent and significance of its global reach, and explores the ways in which it has functioned as literature and stage, TV, film and radio drama from its first appearance to the latest film version of 2012. Appendices include contemporary reviews and comprehensive bibliographies of adaptations and translations. The book is a rich resource for scholars and students of Dickens; of comparative literature; and of publishing, readership, and media history.
